Hormone Replacement Therapy
Increasingly, men and women of all ages are presenting with symptoms of hormonal imbalances. Dr. Maryann Prewitt knows that this is not your fault but, rather, a fact of life in this modern era. She believes that it is not a question of if you should start Hormone Replacement Therapy but when. If you are ready to improve your quality of life for the long term, Dr. Prewitt tailors an individualized program to optimize your hormones through pellet therapy.
Why hormones matter
Only a hundred years ago, people routinely perished from communicable disease, infections, or, for women and their children, in childbirth. Today, life expectancy is growing by leaps and bounds while the human body is still aging at nineteenth-century rates. Advances in fitness, medical innovation, and surgical technology have enabled both our bodies and brains to continue functioning, for some, well into our nineties—and that number is on the rise. So, although we are living longer, we are also living sicker. And the medical establishment is largely to blame. Men and women are not being told that long-term Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) will decrease the risk of much of age-related disease, including heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, breast and prostate cancer, and osteoporosis.
Your hormones and your health
In the same manner that a vintage car can operate for countless years if properly maintained, the human body can continue to function with the correct care. For optimal function, we must manage our hormones as we would change the oil in our car. Conventional physicians fail to recognize the significance of optimizing their patients’ hormones for healthier aging. So, although we are living longer, our various bodily systems are failing or functioning poorly at best. As we age, our quality of life is gravely diminished. As a Functional Medicine physician, Dr. Prewitt know that this does not have to be the case.
We all have hormones—having balanced hormones is equally critical for men as it is for women. Your body is composed of a variety of different hormones, including growth and sex hormones, which carry messages between your organs and cells. Essentially, hormones act as chemical messengers. They are secreted by glands in the endocrine system and their job is to make sure that the body stays balanced and functions optimally. Your sex hormones, your thyroid, and stress hormones all inhabit a delicate ecosystem. When one is out of balance, each individual system suffers.
Why choose BioTE Pelleting?
A message from Dr. Prewitt:
I want my patients to know that HRT is not only safe but also necessary for optimal health, particularly as we age. HRT was pioneered in the 1940s and initially designed for the management of menopause and the many uncomfortable symptoms that come along with it. For decades, HRT has been prescribed to menopausal women to treat hot flashes, sleep disturbances, night sweats, psychological and urinary symptoms, decreases breast cancer, and for the prevention of osteoporosis.
I chose hormone replacement therapy from BioTE for my patients because their quality control and efficacy exceeds the norm. Close isn’t good enough. I don’t want to leave anything to chance. I’ve done the research, so you don’t have to. With BioTE, I know that their pellets are highly regulated. We know the purity, the sterility, the concentration, and the potency.
I only recommend BioTE pellet therapy to my patients, women and men. It is the safest and most effective method of monitoring and optimizing hormone replacement therapy. Over eighty years worth of studies demonstratethe superiority of pellet therapy in maintaining constant and therapeutic hormone levels. The pellet method of HRT has been used in Europe, Canada, and Australia for decades, as well as by select physicians in the US. I am thrilled to be one of these physicians as I see the changes pelleting makes in the lives of my patients daily. Only through pelleting can patients be assured that their levels remain balanced and consistent: in a word, optimal.
Dr. Prewitt’s Last Word
When you think about it, isn’t it ridiculous that conventional medicine waits for the symptoms of menopause and andropause to adversely affect our lives before offering treatment? As a Functional Medicine physician, I see no reason to wait. I want my patients to be and feel their best at every stage of life.
